A person who has built up, owns, or operates a major media empire and runs it with a distinctive management style, e.g. Rupert Murdoch. In the past, media moguls were industrialists; today they are entrepreneurs. A crown prince or princess is the son or daughter of a media mogul who inherits the business; e.g. Elisabeth Murdoch (b.1968), an Australian-British media executive, or James Murdoch (b.1972), the British Chief Executive of News Corporation. A press baron is a mogul whose empire is restricted to newspaper publishing. Compare movie mogul.
